Super Eagles lose Again! No Joy for Jose Peseiro

New boss Jose Peseiro will have to wait for his first victory in charge of the Super Eagles, following another defeat, this time in his second game in charge of the team.

The Super Eagles suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Ecuador, four days after losing to Mexico’s El Tri in another International friendly match.

Friday’s match against the FIFA World Cup bound Ecuador was played inside a nearly packed 25,000 capacity Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.

Villarreal defender Pervis Estupiñán’s headed home the match winning goal inside the opening three minutes to condemn Nigeria to successive loses in the test matches.

Genk’s forward Cyriel Dessers had good opportunities to level for the Eagles, but failed to score despite his one on one chances.

Emmanuel Dennis also missed another glorious chance in the second half, the Watford striker who came on as a substitute blasted a ball over the bar from close range.

Goalkeeper Francis Uzoho made the scoreline respectable as he denied the Ecuadorians with the good stops.

The Super Eagles will now return to Nigeria for the opening game of their 2023 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
